    Sounds like you are using the wrong RAM. Reverse your upgrade. NOW!!!

    Did you try the above suggestions? Take it out and go back to your original RAM. Is your machine behaving properly? If it is, try the RAM again. If it works now it just wasn't seated properly. If it still doesn't work the RAM is bad.
